Endurance World...

In Brief: Estefany Rogel (18) from Uruguay

Name: Estefany Rogel
Age: 18
From: Las Brujas, Canelones, Uruguay

Notable achievements / palmares.

I was lucky to win several races; it is something very important to me. Since I was 11 years old, I completed the Novice qualifications and started riding FEI events.  I was able to finish nearly all the races, for me these are great achievements, thanks to the effort and dedication that I put into the sport.

Endurance World Estefany Rogel. Going well.When did Estefany Rogel start riding?

I started riding when I was 11 years old.
My family is related to horses, but I particularly chose endurance!

Why horses?

I like horses since I was very young,  I always dreamed of participating in horse races. I did not know about endurance, but once there was a qualifier in Las Brujas and they passed by my house. All morning I watched them and I liked it a lot, so I told my dad that I wanted to start riding and training, I wanted to race. It took me a while and I was desperate to participate, hence I begged my dad to ask Fernando (Ospitaleche) if I could start training with him, the race was in three days.  Fernando was very open and agreed, no problem. He even asked if I wanted to ride next Saturday. I was surprised with the offer and determined to train with them,  finally I  ended up running the qualifier!  That’s where all the endurance started for me and which I enjoy doing ever since.

The Endurance gives me the opportunity to travel, this year we went to Dubai thanks to Fernando! I was lucky to be able to race there, it’s something great, I loved it!  This year, I was also able to participate in Chile, yet another very nice experience!  And these adventures mark me for good, memories that I will never forget!

Own horses or ride for somebody else?

I have a horse, but he’s not training at the moment! I’m lucky this year to be able to ride for other people and get very good results!
I train on days I have off from school in Las Brujas Endurance with Fernando Ospitaleche.

What was the best advice you were ever given?

Well, one of the guidance that I was given is that I can do whatever I like doing and I enjoy it very much! You never know what is going to happen in the future so I enjoy the moment I’m going through!

Endurance World Estefany Rogel. Happy.What are you looking at to accomplish?

For now, I would like to continue enjoying this sport,  in the future, I would love to be able to race with my own horses. This is a goal that I have ahead of me!
Moreover I dream to represent my country in competitions abroad!

Who inspires you?

Those who mainly inspire are my family, my boyfriend and friends! I get some great support from all the people around me!
